Chrysochromulina pyramidosa sp. nov. is described on the basis of EM of shadowcast whole mounts, prepared from water samples collected in Oct. 1975 at 2 localities in the Storebaelt (Denmark). The saddle-shaped cell possesses 2 smooth flagella and a short haptonema. The cell surface is covered with scales of 2 types. The underlying scales are circular, flat, wide-meshed plates, whereas the outer scales have a pyramidal superstructure on an otherwise similar base-plate.
